“The Curve is Exponential”

When: Saturday, December 2, 2017 3:253:53 p.m.
Where: Other Location See Description
Description: A new score for carillon + electronics composed by University Carillonneur Joey Brink and composition student Ted Moore. The piece derives its inspiration from—and asks listeners to reflect upon—the original Fermi test, exploring the twenty-four minutes after the pile achieved criticality, and the final four minutes where the experiment shifted from critical to slightly super-critical. The work can be experienced at Rockefeller Chapel or by Henry Moore’s Nuclear Energy sculpture, which was unveiled on December 2, 1967, the 25th anniversary of the experiment.
